    Open Carry Gathering?

    Aloha, I'll be in Colorado Springs the week of 28th, through the 1st of Apr. Was wondering if anyone is interested in getting together for coffee, or dinner in the area. Will be up at the Marriott on Tech Center Dr, just North of the Springs. I am familiar with the area, but not O/C friendly places to eat, drink, gather. Would like to meet adn talk guns, and legislation. Sorry about Constitutional carry, was hoping you guys would help pave the way for us in VA.

    Maybe Cracker Barrel?
    After you Virginia boys took such good care of my brother and got him kicked out of Cracker Barrel there, I might just come down from Denver to see if I can't do the same for you since you're here.
    Lemme look over my schedule.

    That is the reason I said CB. Meant to hit a smiley, but posted instead in my haste.

    Yep, I got it. It sounds like fun. I posted the Virginia link for any others here who don't make it to that board. It's been awhile since i got kicked out of someplace...far too long. hehehe

    Personally, I like supporting mom and pop places that will support people RKBA. I won't make the Springs gathering, but just my 2 cents.

    another recent Cracker Barrel thread

    Ah, yes, the notorious Cracker Barrel... http://www.defensivecarry.com/forum/...lert-long.html

    That forum has an open-carry subforum, but the thread was posted in their concealed-carry sub, so the OP takes some flak about why not concealed, etc. I have seen other CB threads at OCDO too, possibly in either the New Mexico or Arizona subforums.

    Defenselesscarry.com now has an OC forum. WOW, just wow. That is the only message board I have ever been banned from in 20+ years, starting with BBSs back in the late 80s. And it was just for MENTIONING wanting to OC.

    I've arranged a couple of OC's here in the Springs, one of which was at the Cracker Barrel. We didn't have a problem, and neither did I the next two times I OC'd there alone or with a small group of friends/family.

    However, I've done the last three OC meets here in the Springs, so it's someone else's turn to organize. Pick a date, time, long enough out, but not too far (three to five weeks hence) and a place PLEASE don't skimp on the details! There's nothing worse than "Sat afternoon at McDonalds." Really? What time, WHICH of the 26 McDonalds that happen to be at town? (rolls eyes)

    I'd suggest, but It's time someone else step up to the plate! Come on, guys - don't be shy - just do it!

    That would make it Wednesday the 30th. for those not following the first post, correct?
    Far as I know they are friendly. If not we find out the fun way.
    Wed should also be all you can eat wing night.

    I can make it, but that may be a bit short notice for others to make plans.

    Nope, sorry, but Red Dawg was the first to post with at least something. A day of the week and location is better than nothing!

    When is it, Red Dawg? This Wednesday? Next would give more folks an opportunity to catch this thread... Perhaps two weeks from now? Just a thought.

    I have to agree. Breakfast on the weekdays I won't be able to make cause of work. I could make dinner on weekdays or anything on weekends.

    So, Red I dunno how this is working out, but I'll ride on down after class if you'll still be there.

    Okay, looks like a couple/few can make it. Wednesday, March 30th Hooters, Address above. I will be there around 6:30, I'll be there for a good while enjoying the wings. I will definitely be there long after 7:30 for the gent coming after class.
    I'll ask for a table for 6-8. We can expand from there if needed.

    Sorry for lack of better info through all this I am visiting from VA, and only access the computer in the lobby once in awhile.

    Hope to see ya'll there. I'll be the guy with the gun on his hip. HEHE...

    I might make it. I have to tow a car and do a few things around the farm first, but it is a very tentative yes for me tonight. If I do, hope to see everyone, if I don't, hope you all have a great time.

    Red Dawg, do you have a group meeting in the beach? Here in Richmond it's every Saturday "breakfast-till-lunch" at a location to be announced.
